This project is designed to provide web service on embedded system, such as telecom testing equipment. It need very little resource and the performance is not bad. If you choose Lua as script to operate your device, this project is very suitable for you to provide web access feature on the device. Lua can not only operate the device, but also generate the HTML page.
lua5.1 is integrated into shttpd as the default and also only cgi interpreter. It's launched in a thread instread of a new process. CGIlua, a cgi framework for lua is also integrated into it to enable fast CGI development.
In future, I'd like integrate the sqlite into this package too. It's also very small and fast.
Thanks the open source community, who give me so many great components.
